Possibly known to all, especially to your drums
Particularly when a police officer comes

Sultry grin, haughty glance
Very few have ever eyed askance

Red, flowing hair my long distant cousin has
For in the minds of children is where she is known as

Sweetest of melody, behold the wile I procure
More trouble for you should you not resist my allure

Fall in and over, do not dismay
Eternity with me is but a breath away

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure "For in the minds of children is where she is known as" is correct. I think something needs to come after "as", although obviously that would ruin the rhyme. $\endgroup$ Nov 13, 2014 at 18:29

You are a siren. The word has two meanings, as explained below.

Possibly known to all, especially to your drums Particularly when a police officer comes

A police car siren. Drums referring to eardrums.

The rest refers to:

The siren from Greek mythology who sings irresistably with a female voice, luring sailors to their deaths if they don't resist her sweet song. Children learn this myth in school.
